About BCERC

Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference

Babson campusFounded by Babson College in 1981, the BCERC was established to provide a dynamic venue at which academics and real-world practitioners, through spirited dialogue, could link theory and practice. Each year, the Conference attracts more than 350 entrepreneurship scholars who come to hear the presentations of more than 180 papers.

Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, published annually, contains the proceedings of the conference and is the most comprehensive collection of empirical research papers on entrepreneurship. In conjunction with the research conference, a Doctoral Consortium program was created as a means to unite future entrepreneurship educators and scholars with established leaders and researchers in the field.

The annual Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) is the premier scholarly forum for entrepreneurship research in the world.
